I took this photo in Imperial palace plaza.
Kikyo mon (gate) was a gate of former Edo castle.
In the present, it is a gate of Imperial palace.
"Kikyo" means bellflower.
In Edo Era, this gate was for important vassala of Tokugawa shogun.

Beautiful set. I love the architecture of palace, and exotic (for me!) trees around.

Greetings :)

This beautiful, historical place doesn't seem to be in the middle of a city at all. Great place for a stroll.

Now we are strolling around the castle, and discovering other parts of it. This gate is impressive, and As Mark says, we don't know anymore that we are in a modern city..Very beautyful shots!
